This is a lovely piece , which features cannotille gold work that is my favorite thing about the pieces of 1840. It also contains pink topaz stones , and who doesn't love that? The hair of a beloved is has been placed in the center of the piece, and I believe this to be a sentimental piece given to a loved one, and not a memorial piece. It is in excellent condition, and the piece measures 1 inch in diameter. It can be worn as a brooch, and it still retains its "c" clasp, and "t" pin, or it can be worn as a pendant, as the piece has a very nice bale. This lovely pendant/brooch is in excellent condition, and it weights 5.7 grams.
